Knowledge Exchange

Building on
a Century of Excellence

KE Projects 2016-17

Knowledge Exchange (KE), together with Teaching and Research, form the three pillars that underpin all the activities of The University of Hong Kong (HKU). To advocate and support knowledge exchange activities, the University provides KE project funding/grant for its staff and students to undertake projects that enable them to utilise their expertise to create positive impact on the society.

知識交流與教學及研究,構成香港大學(港大)所有活動的三大支柱。為提倡及支持知識交流活動,港大為師生的知識交流項目提供撥款或津貼,鼓勵他們利用專業知識,開展能為社會帶來積極影響的項目。

Project objectives: Many business and policy leaders recognise the need for sustainable business practices, yet there remains considerable confusion in Hong Kong and throughout Asia concerning the meaning of and difference amongst business ethics, social innovation, and corporate social responsibility.

This project aims to educate the business community – and especially the next generation of business leaders - concerning these three topics through seminars, a dynamic website, short articles (both print and social media), and other educational media so that meaningful change can be brought to businesses in Asia.

Project outcomes: The team has greatly expanded its connections with various stakeholder groups in the areas of business ethics, social innovation, and corporate social responsibility, including ethics and compliance specialists at law firms and multinational corporations, local government organisations, and other business ethics educators. Talks on the three topics were delivered both locally and overseas, benefitting various non-academic sectors, such as private sector corporations, students, as well as aspiring business leaders and entrepreneurs. A business ethics website which contains dynamic content, training exercises, op-ed pieces and online videos is currently under construction. It is hoped that the creation of such materials and engagement will create a repository of information that will serve as an on-going database for professionals, practitioners, government bodies, and other interested parties to draw on as they pursue different objectives related to business ethics, social innovation, and CSR.
